Could We Add a Bit More Colour Please?

Despite missing out on a vendor's spot at the West End market yesterday, I decided to pop in to check out the merch.
It was so wonderful to be out in the glorious winter sunshine, which of course required a celebration-of-life outfit with extra zap.
So I wore this enormous silver crinoline I picked up a while ago from the Garterbelts and Gasoline Festival, plus my Love Frida headband with free extra height for fabulousness!

"Love Frida" headband - from my shop, Sassy Vamps!
Leather jacket - retail sale
Miss Camel Toe t-shirt - Ms Mink
Crinoline, earrings - thrifted
Pink skull bracelet - gifted by lovely Krista
Coloured bead bracelets - gifted by cutie Em
UJ ring - gifted by the beautiful Miss Dani-Long-Legs
Other rings - thrifted, craft shops and Etsy
Tights - Sock Dreams
VW Melissa Mary Jane's - shopped by the divine Suzanne
1960s beauty case - flea market
Blue granny beads - eBay
Nails - Sally Hansen Nail Effects Polish Strips

Well will you look at that?
There are some extra legs in the frame ... I wonder who they belong to?

Yes, I bumped into the divooooooooooooon Kitty and her darling precious, VB, who is clearly  checking out Miss Camel Toe's super-power qualities:).

The Stylist got busy rummaging through a box of badges to decorate her bag and she bought herself a new wee toy.
She brought along a lovely friend she's known since infancy and they both dressed up to the nines and wore headbands handmade by The Stylist's fair hands.
The three of us together brought smiles to faces and lovely comments from complete strangers ... "It happens all the time," The Stylist told her bewildered but delighted buddy:).

Who can you see wearing this?  Hmmmmmm?

Who does my cheek-licking move remind you of?

C'mon, you must have guessed by now that I'm going completely nuts without Helga von Trollop as she storms the USA on her triumphant "Don't Be Shy, Be Fabulous!" tour!
We miss you Helga!
Surely she must be headed for home soon with delicious tales of glory and glamour?
VB: (thinks) "What the hell are you doing to my mum's leg?"

Table for six where we all broke bread together ... such a treat to see you lovelies, Kitty and VB!

So did I buy anything?
Why yes, this faaaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous 1950s Canadian fox cape for $20 and a pair of unworn Demonia silver wedges with their original tags attached (RRP $115) - I got them for $45.


I do hope you're all enjoying an utterly excitement-filled weekend sweeties!
Desiree xo


  1. As if the silver crinoline wasn't enough, you add a fabulous fox fur! I miss Helga too.

  2. ...sigh... I'm always lost for words when I see you. Well, specifically... superlatives. YOU are the superlative.

    As in.... you're so fabulous you're Desiree.

    ...and be still my beating heels re the wedges!

  3. Like the famous line in the movie When Harry Met Sally, "I'll wear what she's wearing"! But there's absolutely no way I could infuse these wonderful clothes with matching joie de vivre! I like The Stylist's comment - "It happens all the time." You, Kitty, and the Minis are all divine. I am gaga for your new Demonia shoes.

  24. Holy cannoli woman, you are AWESOMESAUCE. I can't really describe what goes through my brain when I see your stellar outfits other than DGHFGHDGHZOMGSPARKLE!!1! because I'm in such awe of your colour and zaz mastery that I cannot form proper words. The layered tights and fishnets, the crinoline, Miss Camel Toe, LOVE IT ALLLL. And those silver wedges are the shit! Someday, I am going to get to Australian and (wiff your permission) I'ma find you and give you the greatest big ol' hug. And then continuously pounce on you for huggles any time you are awesome, which means you might have me clinging to ya like a koala :P

  27. The new sassy vamps crowns are beyond fantastic!!!

  28. Desiree, we have some sort of crazy outfit connection going on - I found a fox cape at a thrift store in April that looks exactly the same as the one you're wearing (it was $12, but it's shedding quite profusely). With our matching silver crinolines and fox capes, we could have our own carnival act, I tell ya! That is just tooooo awesome.

  29. I want this whole outfit for my very own! You look friggin amazeballs in this dazzling display of silver and color! Helga misses you too. If you want to see her pop on over to my blog, we are hanging out!!!

  30. You silver encrusted biatch!
    What an divino silver crinoline, oh that fur stole what a bargain.
    You prostis are looking scrumptious in your sexy tights.
    The little divas in the making are just to darn adorable like their Mamas.
    I could picture myselg wearing that fab bullet bra but I know who you are talking about.


Just do it ...
